Can't Predict Baseball: Picking On A Pitcher

On this day in 1939 George Selkirk, over two successive games, hits four home runs in four at bats against the same pitcher. The Yankee outfielder hit the home runs off the A's starting pitcher Robert Joyce with two home runs yesterday and hit two more on this day when he came in as a reliever. Can't predict baseball.

On this day in 1941 before the first night game played in Washington D.C. and in Griffith Stadium the Senators Walter Johnson throws a strike through a beam of light triggering a switch that lights up the stadium. While that was a pretty awesome gesture and show the Senators would lose the game to the Yankees 6-5 for their tenth consecutive loss.
